From the Mexican War to the events of this past day, the ASSOCIATED PRESS has covered breaking news when and where it occurs-but the printed page is just the beginning. Now, researchers can look beyond the reporting from this not-for-profit news cooperative and uncover its context, backstory, and logistics over the past 100 years with the Associated Press Collections Online, available in six groundbreaking archives.

AP: NEWS FEATURES & INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS includes news analysis, human interest stories, and entertainment and sports reporting from the 1940s forward. While News Features gave writers the freedom to explore the back story, address cultural happenings, and provide their own interpretations of events, internal communications allowed the Associated Press to tell its own story. This collection provides rare access to an array of internal AP publications dating from the turn of the century, offering invaluable insight into the AP, its staff, and the history of news coverage.

U.S. CITY BUREAUS COLLECTION offers access to records from the AP's domestic bureaus, dating from 1931 to 2004. Primarily a post-World War II collection, these records include news stories in the form of typescript carbons or wire copy, the version that AP sent on to its member newspapers, which members were free to alter. Among the most covered topics are crime, education, civil rights, environmental issues, immigration, urban affairs, sports, elections, and politics. With surprising frequency, regional stories turned into news of transcendent importance.

EUROPEAN BUREAUS COLLECTION provides coverage of the twentieth-century's most influential international bureaus: Vienna, Geneva, Warsaw, Bern, Berlin, and Prague-as well as a special cross-bureau collection that covers conflicts and disorders that affected the whole of the continent. These records allow researchers to relive the news as it happened when they examine the original typescript carbons or wire 1960 1970 1980 A fantastic resource for all things 20th century

MIDDLE EAST BUREAUS COLLECTION offers access to the records from some of the AP's most active international bureaus, delivering the exclusive stories behind the headlines from 1967 to 2005. With stories stemming from Jerusalem, Ankara, Beirut and their surrounding areas, these records include news stories in the form of typescript carbons or wire copy, the version that AP sent on to its member newspapers, which members were free to alter. Among the most covered topics are military operations, civil and global wars, diplomacy, refugees, cultural clashes, and terrorism, providing dynamic, real-time insights into the second half of the twentieth century regarding issues of global importance that still impact the world today. copy, the firsthand accounts AP sent to its member newspapers, which members were then free to alter. Among the most covered topics are the WWII and postwar reconstruction, Nazism and its aftermath, the Cold War, espionage, the arms and space races, the fall of the Soviet Union, and many other events and movements that have left an indelible mark on history.

WASHINGTON, D.C. BUREAU COLLECTION, PART I provides access to bureau records (1938-2009), documenting the administrations of seven U.S. presidents. The collection contains an extensive trove of wire copy and includes coverage of press conferences, travel, speeches, campaigns, and messages to Congress. The copy reflects the major events of each presidency, including the Kennedy assassination, Watergate and the Nixon impeachment hearings. Other topics of interest are U.S. elections and biographical information on statesmen, entertainers, scientists, politicians, and other prominent people.

WASHINGTON D.C. BUREAU COLLECTION, PART II covers the presidencies of Wilson, Harding, and Coolidge with stunning depth, providing an unbroken chronology of world and national events as reported by the AP from 1915 to 1930. This previously unavailable wire copy covers the presidents' and other key figures' press conferences, travel, speeches, campaigns, and more; it also includes the only significant reporting on World War I throughout the collections. Other key topics of interest include the Armenian massacre in Turkey, the Rockefeller Foundation activities against typhus and cholera in Serbia, the Mexican Revolution, the Bolshevik Revolution, the Tokyo Earthquake, and Black Thursday on Wall Street.
